In the heart of the city, Levidian’s edifice stands tall, yet its roofing issues had become a looming concern. Pervasive leaks and other age-related problems necessitated expert intervention. Enter Cambridge Roofers, known for their keen problem-solving acumen and industry-leading expertise in roofing solutions.
- Pervasive Leaks: The building was plagued with multiple leaks, making it an urgent issue to be addressed.
- Aged Infrastructure: The roof was a single skin buildup, with skylights severely aged and degraded by UV rays, further complicated by the delamination of the metal sheets.
- Multifaceted Damage: Observations by Cambridge Roofers indicated multiple splits, cracks, and openings, particularly in the skylights.
Cambridge Roofer’s Approach:
- Full Roof Overhaul: Overlay the current roof with a new insulated system, offering the best long-term solution, albeit at a higher cost.
- Roof Refurbishment: Overhaul the existing roof with fresh paint, new skylights, and fixings. Cost-effective compared to the first option, yet offering significant improvement.
- Localised Repairs: Addressing immediate problem areas to halt any further water leakage into the building.
Levidian, after careful consideration, opted for the localised repairs. While this was initially successful, the single-skin buildup led to persistent condensation issues and water ingress. Recognizing this, Cambridge Roofers made a compelling case for an insulated overclad, given its long-term benefits.
Going The Extra Mile:
Within a year, seeing the unwavering commitment and expertise of Cambridge Roofers, Levidian greenlit the full roof refurbishment. The Roofers faced the challenge of integrating a flashing detail at the building’s front. However, they astutely recognized that removing the vertical cladding—a cost-intensive process—was unnecessary. Instead, they innovatively proposed to re-coat it.
Furthermore, Cambridge Roofers, with their forward-thinking approach, engineered a bespoke flashing detail. This not only addressed the immediate issue but enhanced the building’s aesthetics, bolstering Levidian’s brand image.
